  • 12 chocolate cream-filled sandwich cookies

  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 (3 ounce) package gummy worms candy


  1. Place cookies into a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin into crumbs.

  2. Whisk together pudding mix with milk in a bowl, stirring for 2 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the crushed cookie crumbs into the bottom of a serving bowl and spoon chocolate pudding over crumbs. Smooth out the top of the pudding, then top with the rest of the chocolate cookie crumbs to resemble dirt.

  4. Poke gummy worms halfway into the dirt. Refrigerate until serving.


For a more mud- or dirt-like appearance, untwist the sandwich cookies and scrape off the creme filling before crushing them.
